Overnight July 4 gunfire ends with bullet through woman’s window

Someone shot into a woman’s home in Long Beach’s Wrigley neighborhood overnight, but police are still trying to figure out who did it and why—including whether it was intentional.

Police said they woman called them around 6:40 a.m. Friday to say a bullet had shattered her window Thursday night.

When officers got there, they found a bullet inside the home near Burnett Street and Chestnut Avenue, LBPD spokeswoman Shauna Dandoy said. Nobody was hurt.

So far, police don’t have any information on a motive or any suspects, Dandoy said.

The woman who reported the bullet posted a picture of her shattered window in a private Facebook group for the Wrigley neighborhood.

“Woke up to a big surprise!” She wrote. “Happy 5th of July Wrigley! This could of hit any innocent person!”
